maybe change the title to New York | Hudson Yards Phase I | 1x 1337ft/407m | 3x 844ft+/257m+ or something.

FiDi is inferior in the following ways. feel free to add to the list.

-offices

When I visited the site this summer, I found it really underdeveloped and rundown. How glad I am to see this awesome project

I would exclude open spaces from that list. While midtown has successfully creat more pedestrian space around times square and 34 st, nothing compares to battery park, south street, and area around wfc.

No. But that's the same guy that asked why Hong Kong's taller skyscrapers don't have antennas on them, without ever having seen a picture of Hong Kong to know that all the antennas are on the mountains.

On a more related note, while it is reasonable to keep the North and South Towers in one thread, could we expect new threads for the other two towers? They seem less... Related ()... to each other than the main towers.

But "that same guy" asked that questions when he was absolutely new to skyscrapers. You can't expect people to know everything after a few weeks of learning about skyscrapers. People need time to absorb all the necessary info about all the relevant cities and buildings

I was born and raised in NYC, and I revisit it at least twice a year for at least a week each time. And I always stay in the financial district. In fact, when I move back to NYC, I'm planning to find a place somewhere in the area. So don't say the only people who prefer lower manhattan over midtown are the people who haven't been there.

Sorry to derail, but I had to throw my 2 cents in.

Actually, I have walked through both, and the Financial District was much more appealing. The narrow, bending streets seemed so intimate, and the way it lies in the center of New York Harbor surrounded on three sides by water is absolutely lovely. It's bridges are stunning (well, the three just north of it) and it is soaked in history because it is the heart and epicenter of the city. Whenever I see it, I momentarily slip beyond the event horizon into a timeless, insurpassable place of my wildest dreams. It's absolutely magnificent.

Lower Manhattan (I'll kill the next mfer who says FiDi) is the bomb. It has a byzantine quality to it, dark bending streets, and its architecture is grander and older than what you find in Midtown.

Meanwhile at the Hudson Yards, a brand new neighborhood is taking shape (something that doesn't exactly happen every day in NYC). It'll be a completely fresh sector of the city to explore, visit, live and work in. And it doesn't even exist yet. Something to wrap your head around.

I happen to enjoy Lower Manhattan a little more than Midtown.

Square Feet
Already Wooing Tenants in Hudson Yards Visualhouse

By PETER SLATIN
Published: January 15, 2013



Plans for an athletic stadium fit for the Olympic Games are long gone, but there is no shortage of fierce competition taking shape in the area known as Hudson Yards. Instead of gold medals, though, these players will measure their success in billions of dollars in rent from commercial and residential tenants, and hotel guests. They also hope for bragging rights as the pioneers of a 60-block district that will be transformed by new infrastructure, commercial buildings and public spaces.

As envisioned over the last two decades, the Hudson Yards District — from 30th to 42nd streets and Eighth Avenue to the Hudson River — will support some 25 million square feet of office space and 20,000 residential units, a quarter of which have already been built or are under construction, along with about 3,200 hotel rooms.

In addition to the private money that will fuel this development, the city is plowing $3.1 billion in public funds into the extension of the No. 7 subway line to 11th Avenue and 34th Street from Times Square, and a new park and esplanade. Hudson Park and Boulevard will run from 33rd to 36th streets midway between 10th and 11th Avenues....

I wonder if there is a case for a light rail to shuttle people between the various parts of Hudson yards and on to penn station.

For L.I. riders, it won't be necessary since LIRR trains will be stopping at CGT in a few years. They can get off there and take the 7 subway to the HY.

It still would be nice though since Penn Station offers great rail service to Newark Airport.

Great pic, these towers will bring a lot of brightness in the skyline. Btw, 1WTC looks a bit handicapped.
